Fight death: head injuries from hitting ground

BOGALUSA, La. (AP) — Bogalusa Police Chief Joe Culpepper says an autopsy indicates that a man who died in a weekend fight died of injuries from his head hitting the ground or road after he was punched.

He tells the Daily News (http://bit.ly/19ZyLvy) that the pathologist doesn’t think any weapon was used against 42-year-old Chad Ellis.

Ellis was not breathing when police arrived outside the L&C bar early Saturday.

Culpepper said Tuesday that police are still trying to interview witnesses, and anyone with information should call detectives.
